...having too many credit cards in your wallet was not one of them. Can't say I'm surprised it turned out to be a scam. The latest crowdfunded crap I've seen being promoted on Facebook: some shysters trying to convince investors that a Samsung Tablet with VNC installed on it is a novel invention.
These days, crowdfunding seems to be less garage/backyard tinkerers, and more already wealthy con artists using it as an easy source of income. Can't say I blame them - if I had the means to promote and profit from some idiotic "invention", I'd probably do that shit too. Anybody want to invest in my solar powered vinyl player which automatically uploads your music to the cloud? I swear, it's going to be the next big thing!
